Priscilla

Paper Dolls Priscilla by Kara R. Hunt My rating: 5 of 5 stars We met Priscilla in Hunt’s first book of the series, and she was a difficult character to connect with for several reasons – read book one and you’ll understand. But her personal growth throughout that book set up beautifully for what happensContinue reading “Priscilla”

Borne by Love

Borne by Love by Jericha Kingston My rating: 5 of 5 stars I was able to read an early copy of this Jericha Kington novel. It’s romantic suspense with a huge twist – a surrogate pregnancy.

Carved in Stone

Carved in Stone by Elizabeth Camden My rating: 4 of 5 stars I loved Elizabeth Camden’s early novels, but then I read a few that didn’t interest me much.

Season of My Enemy

Season of My Enemy by Naomi Dawn Musch My rating: 5 of 5 stars I loved this book! It’s a beautiful picture of the world of WWII seen from the American home front.
